As the global Covid19 pandemic approaches its first anniversary, attention is turning to the long-term effects experienced by a significant proportion of those infected with the virus. It seems likely that there will be a need for services to support these people for years to come.

The NIHR Centre for Engagement and Dissemination has recently published a review of the current state of knowledge. Whilst evidence about the prevalence of ‘Long Covid’ is emerging, there is still much that we do not know.  The review seeks to frame a dialogue with the public, health and social care professionals, researchers, service providers and policy makers to better understand the issues around living with Covid19.

To further this dialogue, people of any and all backgrounds and experience of Covid19 are invited to join us in discussing some of the challenges that highlighted in the review.

This event will look at 'Acting on the lived experience of Long Covid - How could and should accounts of lived experience be used by practitioners, policy makers and researchers?’ with members of the patient reference group that helped to produce the review.
